EDSA and IEEE partner to offer new power systems engineering continuing education courses

Emphasis on energy management, mission-critical facility design, and diagnostics

06/16/2008


SAN DIEGO--( BUSINESS WIRE )-- EDSA Micro Corp ., the leading developer of power analytics solutions for the design, testing, and live management of complex electrical power systems, today announced that it has been selected to join the IEEE Education Partners Program (EPP) . EDSA is one of only 18 non-educational companies in EPP; as a result, two of EDSA’s electrical power systems engineering classes are now part of the IEEE’s continuing education offerings for its 375,000 members worldwide.

IEEE is the world’s largest professional society for electrical and electronics engineers, with membership spanning more than 160 countries, 324 discipline-specific sections, and 1784 local chapters. In addition, IEEE sponsors more than 850 educational conferences per year, and publishes 144 engineering journals and magazines per year. There are three factors that will make this alliance beneficial to power systems engineers, especially those in IEEE’s “Power Engineering Society” or PES:

1. Around the world, most licensed power systems engineers are required to attend continuing education courses; in the United States, 30 of the 50 states make continuing education a requirement for continued licensure - which EDSA courses now help to fulfill;

could vastly improve the safety, reliability, and energy efficiency of their operations;

safety codes and standards.

Courses are held monthly at EDSA’s headquarters in San Diego, as well as other locations. Each three-day course counts as 3.0 continuing education units (CEUs) or 30 professional development hours (PDHs). IEEE members interested in enrolling in courses can do so by visiting IEEE or EDSA .

•Power Systems Modeling Essentials %%MDASSML%% A three-day (3.0 CEU/30 PDH) hands-on workshop that teaches users the basic skills required to build a power systems model, as well as perform studies for power flow, short circuit, protective device coordination, arc flash, and other engineering tasks.

•Advanced Power Systems Modeling %%MDASSML%% A three-day (3.0 CEU/30 PDH) hands-on workshop that teaches users more extensive skills for building power systems models to ensure power quality, reliability, and efficiency, as well as applying more sophisticated forms of analysis to ensure the integrity of the finished facility.

EDSA training courses are taught by Prof. Silviu Darie, PhD, EE, PE, who has more than 40 years’ experience in University-level electrical engineering instruction and industry consulting. He is a renowned authority worldwide in power system analysis computer applications, electrical energy distribution, electrical energy management, demand side management, power quality, transmission pricing, embedded generation, computer-aided power system analysis, and design. In addition to earning both his Doctorate and Master’s degrees in electrical engineering, he has led more than 180 electrical power projects worldwide, and authored or co-authored hundreds of technical books, student manuals, technical papers, and research projects.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
